Eastern Sierra Scene - Mono Lake

This image, I made in 2006 near Mono Lake on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. We had just finished a short visit to Bodie, a gold mining Ghost town from the mid to late 1800's.
This is certainly not a zoom shot, the entire scene has always amazed me...the vastness of this area is amazing.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
